"Gives good feedback" "Respected by students" "Participation matters"

He makes philosophy so interesting, so much so that you will want to show and learn and question everything that's talked about. If you love philosophy and want to absorb as much as possible DEFINITELY TAKE HIS CLASS YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

PHIL 2306 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

PROS: Knows his stuff, is interesting, and will challenge you to think differently and be more open. Responds quickly. CONS: Very arrogant, expects perfection on YOUR papers when most of the materials he provides have terrible spelling and grammar. Friendly, but it comes across as very phony. His email replies seem half-interested and curt.

Professor Barber is by far the best professor I have had at Richland College, he cares about the material and about his students, he makes the class interesting and is enthusiastic about the subjects you cover. I would take his class over again if I had to. He is funny and easy going and clear in his expectations of his class. he is an A++ profess.

The class was intense. He is a very interactive Professor. If you can keep up with the discussions and your papers you'll be fine. The protocol papers are key.

Loved loved loved this class! I took Professor Barber's Ethics class online and it was amazing. He keeps the class relevant, tests were easy and all you need to do is write a protocol paper once a week and participate in the discussion group- that's it! One of the best teachers I've ever had!

Highly recommend Dr Barber to anyone looking to take a Philosophy course. I took fast-track online Ethics this semester. It was one of the best courses I've ever taken - I won't forget it! I did not agree with everything Ethics teaches and I was allowed to disagree! You must do your work and participate, but the requirements are easy to meet!

Great teacher - took online course - interacts with class, very clear on what is due and when, responds promptly to emails, easy A if you participate and do the required work. Would take another class instructed by him again.

He is a good teacher and is interested in helping students succeed. I enjoyed the class, and of you read and join in the discussion you will do fine. I took Ethics, and I question the ethics of a professor using a book he wrote for class, when that book has nothing to do with ethics. Maybe he does it to provide contrast?

He is a very nice and helpful man, as well a fair, but the content and the Professor are EXTREMELY Liberal. So if you give an opinion that is not to the far left of the political spectrum, expect to be challanged. Basically an indoctrination course covering far left ideology.
